Advances in robotics and automation make the chemical industry more competitive and flexible

Automating the chemical industry

Unchained Robotics helps companies in the chemical industry find automation solutions that meet their specific needs. Browse and compare a wide range of automation solutions on the Unchained Marketplace, including robots, cameras, grippers, complete solutions and more.

The chemical industry and its robotic future

The Chemical Industry is one that requires exactitude, efficiency, and serious safety precautions. Accidents are expensive, time-consuming, and most of all dangerous. The chemical production facility of tomorrow is one that is as automated as possible. Not only in the name of safety and efficiency, but also in the name of agility. Modern robotics are more dexterous, reliable, and user friendly than ever before. This means that they can be used in and adapt to increasingly demanding environments. The new generation of collaborative robots are easier to integrate, program, and use than ever before – many requiring no expert training whatsoever to install for common processes. In a market marked by global competition and rising labor costs, robotics can give the businesses in the Chemical industry the agility they need to thrive in tomorrow’s market.

The collaborative future of the chemical industry

The advantages of the next generation of robotics


Cobots meet strict safety requirements that allow for their utilization in close proximity to people or even work directly with them as part of a hybrid process. This means that the robot can perform more human-like tasks or simply make a current human worker more efficient.

Easy to Integrate

Thanks to this capacity for collaboration, companies in the Chemical industry do not need to completely rebuild their processes and lines around robots themselves. This means that previous investments in machinery can be partially or fully automated without massive changes to the production line or the deprecation recently purchased machinery.


Collaborative robots are in general much easier to program and repurpose than traditional industrial robots, allowing for much greater adaptability. Often, reprogramming a cobot perform a new task on a new line or a new batch is something that any operator can be trained to do. Investments in robots make you more not less agile.

01. Use Case: Palletizing

Palletizing is a very common application in the chemical industry and can also be easily automated with modern tools from Unchained.

Sample Requirements

Below is an example requirement based on this industry.

50x20x30 cm
14 kg
Proposed Solution

Doosan Robotics H2515

€50,500.00 excl. VAT.

A powerful cobot with reach

With a reach of 1,500 mm and a payload of 25 kg, the Doosan H2515 is an ideal and extremely powerful and adaptable cobot.

OnRobot VGP20

€5,333.00 - €6,853.00 excl. VAT.

Powerful electric vacuum gripper, ideal for palletizing boxes

The VGP20 is an electrically driven vacuum gripper. By using an electrically generated vacuum, this gripper allows for much easier setup and less maintenance compared to a conventional pneumatic gripper.

ifm O3D Camera

€1,450.50 excl. VAT.

A reliable and affordable 3D camera

With a working distance of 300 to 10,000 mm, the IFM O3D is an ideal camera for vision-based palletizing. By using a camera instead of a conventional sensor, the palletizing solution can be reprogrammed and reused much more easily.
